Overview

Utilizing the innovative ACP 100 optical mark reader (OMR) from Chatsworth Data, Examiner Express provides the power of a full-featured computer-managed assessment system in a traditional and cost-effective paper-and-pencil environment. Previous OMR solutions have required the investment of thousands of dollars for hardware, and nearly as much for software. The ACP 100 coupled with Examiner Express brings the total cost of ownership to a fifth or less of previous systems.

Examiner Express has been designed from the ground up to provide the features most wanted by educators, assessment specialists, and school administrators.

Taking hours to grade assessments and create student reports is a thing of the past with Examiner Express. An answer key can be created and loaded in under a minute. 30 student assessments can be graded as fast as OMR cards can be fed into the scanner. Sophisticated reports showing both classroom and individual student performance are instantly available.

At the core of Examiner Express is a suite of assessment design and analysis tools that have been used world-wide by Fortune 500 companies. The data analysis routines within Examiner Express were developed by and for psychometricians and assessment specialists.

Seeing how your students are performing has never been easier. Administrative reports necessary for mandated progress reporting will take minutes rather than hours. The Examiner Express saves time, and gives you back your classroom.
